The sick guy wants to be well. The skinny-as-a-rail guy wants muscles. The bald guy wants hair. The mid-level manager who’s going nowhere wishes he owned his own business. The entrepreneur with the failing business wishes he had a corporate job. Long story short, you’re not the only special little flower out there with a problem.
